    How to install the jbpm-jpdl-suite-3.2.GA on linux?

    dabd dabd Newbie

      Hi,

      I am a total newbie with jbpm. I downloaded and extracted the jbpm-jpdl.suite-3.2.GA on Ubuntu. I read the readme.html file but I don't see the instructions on installing jbpm.

      How do I tell eclipse where to find the gpd plugin? How do I get the included JBoss server up and running?

      Thanks.

          There are some special switches in jBPM making sure that it doesn't run on Ubuntu... :-p

          No seriously, I also experienced that some of the build scripts are not running on linux as I switched to Fedora 7 recently. Here is the manual process:

          - extract the jbpm-jpdl-suite-3.2.GA bundle in your preferenced folder. you'll see the newly created jbpm-jpdl-3.2.GA folder which I call ${JBPM_HOME}.

          - extract the correct Eclipse version (e.g. 3.2.1) in the folder ${JBPM_HOME}/designer.

          - make sure all the extracted scripts are executable:

          [blah@localhost ~]$ chmod 755 ${JBPM_HOME}/server/start.sh
          [blah@localhost ~]$ chmod 755 ${JBPM_HOME}/server/bin/run.sh


          - start the server with the command ${JBPM_HOME}/server/start.sh

          - start the designer with the command ${JBPM_HOME}/designer/eclipse/eclipse -data ${JBPM_HOME}/designer/workspace


          You could create a start.sh script in the ${JBPM_HOME}/designer folder containing the above command. Use ${JBPM_HOME}/designer/start.bat as the example.

            Thanks for the reply.
            When I launch Eclipse with ${JBPM_HOME}/designer/eclipse/eclipse -data ${JBPM_HOME}/designer/workspace I am unable to create JBPM project. Do I need to do something else to enable the gpd?

            Thanks.
